Neither movie was done well. The first lacked in film making even for the early 60s. The second was too far off the book. The 90s movie had Ralph with his arm in a sling. The kid who acted the part broke his arm just before filming began. That kid, Balathazar was part of the "Getty" family - one of the wealthiest families in the world. I often wonder if the disaster of a movie was not made just to appease his desire for an acting career ?

I read only the book. Good read ... mandatory in a way. There is no way to think bout you, as reading person, if you read stuff like HP only. Those books like Lord of the flies that changes your life

Great video. However, I must say that as a student of sociology and psychology (as well as a history and sociology enthusiast) I strongly believe the book to be largely based upon a faulty premise. The idea that the only bulwark against unchecked violence\aggression is the trappings of modern civilization is not borne out by the data. Human beings generally favor cooperation over aggression in a state of nature. In fact, an almost identical scenario occurred in real life and the children survived quite peacefully until being safely rescued. Our propensity toward violence sharply increased after we became agrarian and began to form static "civilized" social structures. The "inherent barbarism" concept this book helped carve into our modern cultural psyche is pretty cancerous IMO. I take your point about the role fear can play in amplifying a group's more destructive traits, however, fears ability to unify seems far too often overlooked as a result of confirmation/negativity bias. If "human nature" was as Golding depicted it to be, our species would have long ago proven inviable (again IMO). The Walking Dead is a perfect example of how much this idea of "human nature" has skewed our perception of reality, that is simply not how human beings would respond in such a situation over a sustained period.

I am one of the few people I know that really liked that book. As a teen and as an adult. It is terrible, of course but it makes you *feel*. It's message is poignant.

The movie Eden was kind of similar but with high school/college age kids. It also introduced two women on the island which made for kind of an interesting dynamic.

I saw the 1990 version. If I'm not mistaken it features the late Bob Peck (Robert Muldoon from Jurassic Park..R.I.P.) at the end of the film. I want to watch the 1963 version now. Great shout out to Michael Biehn's underrated Lt. Coffee from the equally underrated The Abyss!

I have a lot of respect for this story. The way it's crafted and how the boys slowly descend into anarchy is one of the most chilling things I have ever experienced. My only real problem with it is that it's bullshit. Psychologist, especially Child Psychologist, all pretty much universally agree if this kind of scenario were to actually happen, children would do a lot better at surviving and building a society together than the story claims. Hell, just look at when this actually happened in 1965 and 6 schoolboys were stranded on the island 'Ata in the Tonga archipelago for over a year. Instead of desolving into chaos, the boys actually did a great job of working together to survive. They managed to set up a strict system of chores and ways to deal with fights. It was incredibly effective at keeping them working together, and they survived for over a year before they were rescued. It kinda erks me when people say Lord of the Flies gives us a harsh, real look into human nature, because objectively speaking it lies about the human nature. But that's just me

I did this triple intake of the story a couple years ago. I never read it in highschool and I was on a kick to read classics. The book is brilliant and the 63 movie great. The 90s movie is a testament to movie audience expectations and hand holding ruining story telling. Ok I'm done.

Well, you brought it up, Jeremy... *Gotta review **_The Abyss_** now.* Not low key - it is, IMO, Cameron's best movie, *miles away* of _Titanic._ I mean, just 'The Resurrection Scene', as I call it... damn. So I would love to see you give it a legit review.

I only watched the Black and White Version and that was back in High School, and now that I've also seen all of the Star Trek TOS Episodes the Lord Of The Flies Really Reminds me of the Episode simply titled 'Miri' In Season 1 of the show. Instead of an Island these kids get an Entire Planet to themselves if I'm not Mistaken, and as for what 'The Lord Of The Flies' means to me Personally is that Laws Are Necessary I Guess?

Great review! Being forced to watch this film and read the book in primary school made me dislike it, but I agree with all of your points and I'll have to re-watch it again. Who has re-read some of the texts they were forced to study in school? I have a feeling we'd appreciate them more now.

I have seen the black and white 60's movie and read the book. There was an interesting tumblr post talking about how Lord of the Flies only applies to upper middle class British boys, because studies show that children that age in lower economic circumstances tend to be more empathetic and compassionate. At least, if I'm remembering correctly.

Spoiler Alert Lol at the end of the book the British kids are acting all kinds of guilty, the naval personnel comes on shore and they're like oh dame. I feel like most of them would've justified what they did after. I bet the outcome of the lord of the flies would be mostly determined from where they came from and what time period they we're stranded in. If you've ever been to an international camp. It's kind of like a science experiment. People's background and culture has a role in determining the outcome of which the lord of the flies is based upon. However, in the end of the day. People will end up following the leader among themselves. It's just the characteristics to the one in charge that are different in every scenario. Kids and adults will always find someone to follow that makes them feel safe.

Given how well he is good with children actors and the stories he tells with them, I would love to see Taika Waititi do an adaptation of the book. That or get 80's Spielberg circa E.T. and Empire of the Sun to do it. And while I agree the older movie is a better adaptation of the newer one, I don't feel either one of them caught the utterly spookiness I felt reading the book. The almost supernatural evil tone that Simon felt that lent itself to the title of the book. Lord of the Flies is a reference to a demon. Beelzebub. I want that element in the movies. I don't need to see the demon. He doesn't appear, himself, in the book. But I want that moment where Simon looks at the pig's head on the pike and feel that glimpse of supernatural evil that he felt. I want that uneasiness. That almost fever dream.

I saw the 90's version when I was a kid. That movie was probably my first experience being traumatized from a movie. It was the part when they dropped a rock on that one kid's head (I think they called him Piggy). That part freaked me out for days afterwards.

I've read the book( middle or early highschool? ) and have watched both movies (one for English class and the other for my law class). I do agree with him that the 1963 version, on the basis that with a small budget they had to get creative, it just feels more real and it makes you feel the conflict they went through.
